Ivanka Trump’s purse designer is facing a boycott!!! On Monday, Donald Trump had federal police fire rubber bullets and tear gas at a crowd of peaceful protestors outside of St. John’s Episcopal Church so he could walk over there and have his picture taken holding a bible.
Ivanka played a major role in the disastrous publicity stunt.
The New York Times reports that not only was she the one who encouraged her dad to show a sign of force after it was revealed he had spent part of the weekend cowering in a bunker, but she personally transported the bible he used in the photo op from the White House to the church in her $1,540 Max Mara handbag.
Vanity Fair reports:
Understandably, the Italian luxury brand hasn’t sent out any press releases to tout the event. Fashion houses often do that when one of their items makes a prominent public appearance, though they’ve largely slowed such updates during the protests and the coronavirus pandemic. A representative for the label didn’t return a request for comment.
But while the fashion house may not be speaking about the matter, people on Twitter sure have a lot to say. Some are going so far as to call for the brand to be boycotted.
Peaceful protesters getting tear-gassed but I’m so glad Ivanka didn’t forget her purse!— Asha Rangappa (@AshaRangappa_) June 2, 2020
What on earth is she carrying in there? Her pride? Her soul? S’mores? pic.twitter.com/sbzHxo4SzY
